Our apartment dweller should have attended
A man had to be led from his flat after a fire started when he tried to dry his underpants and socks in the microwave.
Firefighters were called to the blaze on Market Street in Weymouth, Dorset, after concerned neighbours heard a fire alarm…Residents from the block of flats led the man to safety from his second floor apartment following the fire at 10.45pm yesterday.
A Dorset Fire and Rescue spokeswoman said: “The fire involved two pairs of underpants and two pairs of socks which the occupant had tried to dry by placing in the microwave.
The fire safety message here is to stop doing stupid things with devices which can ignite your underwear.
